Kristen Tuff Scott Had to Go through Mastectomy to Prevent Breast Cancer
Social media celebrity Kristen Tuff Scott survives breast cancer scare by courageously undergoing mastectomy.
American celebrity Kristen Tuff Scott, who has a massive social media fan following, recently bravely battled breast cancer. She is a social media influencer with 1.5 million followers on Facebook, 150K on Instagram, and 35K subscribers on YouTube. She has also carved a niche for herself in the world of comedy.
Battling Cancer With Courage
The toughest cowgirl in the town, Scott, was diagnosed with breast cancer in the mid-2010s, which required her to undergo a mastectomy.
According to Breastcancer.org, Mastectomy is a procedure in which the entire breast is removed via breast surgery to eliminate the risk of re-occurrence of cancer.
The social media star was always vocal about her cancer and the procedures before the surgery — and continued to speak about it after completing her surgery, too.
Scott took to Instagram on October 16, 2016, [first time after the surgery] to update her fans and followers that she successfully battled cancer. She bravely posted a picture that showed her chest with her removed breast.
"I've debated on post this photo but I decided to. Don't wait till tomorrow folks...it may not come! I may lose followers but it's ok and well worth it if I save one person," she wrote in the caption.
Faced Trans Rumors After Surgery
Since removing her breast through mastectomy, Scott received various messages through various mediums, concerning her breast's disappearance.
Many even questioned her if she had evolved into a transgender person, by changing her gender.
Addressing those queries and trans rumors, she posted a Facebook video in December 2017, where she claimed that she had surgery to remove her breast because of cancer.
She further shared that people teased her alluding that she might be trans after her breast cancer operation — which was not true.
Later, Scott stated that she was recovering and was also in pain as a drainage tube was fitted in her chest during the mastectomy operation.
The Telling Revelation
Scott told fans in her video that she dreaded visits to the clinic throughout her battle against breast cancer. She has developed a lot of confidence and self-admiration since the surgery and now uploads photos with the hashtag #survivor on Instagram.
After her breast operation, she also underwent surgery to remove a mole from her back and jaw.
Now, Scott is back to her daily routine and has returned to social media and spends time with her animals.
A Multi-Faceted Personality
Scott, who came into the limelight with the release of Pokémon GO, enjoys diesel cars, playing the guitar, singing, fishing, and spending time with her pets, including horses, puppies, and cows.
The internet personality was also featured in the fifth season of the reality show Redneck Island. Her debut on the show skyrocketed her to fame, leading to thousands of followers on social media.
Before surgery, she created a self-titled YouTube channel on December 13, 2012, with popular videos like 'Pokemon,' 'Crop dusted a cop,' and 'Yoga pants!!'
She also has funny videos on YouTube, including 'Funny Wisdom Teeth Removal,' 'The only gay Republican,' and 'She's a little longer, so stick with it!'
